Or... you could call it Rocky Road! This is just one of the recipes available in my Easy Baking E-book which you can buy here: https://www.thesugarrosekitchen.co.uk/product-page/easy-baking-ebook
This is such an easy no-bake recipe and a great one to do with the kids. The beauty of it is you can put whatever you want in and it won't spoil. If the kids don't like raisins, just leave them out, if you'd prefer ginger nuts to rich tea just go for it. I like to experiment with different flavourings and ingredients like fudge chunks, honeycomb, varieties of dried fruit like cherries and cranberries. Just go for whatever takes your fancy, or whatever you need to use up!
In terms of chocolate I would go for the best quality you can find, it melts easier, holds together better and tastes amazing. Melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup together, preferably in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water to avoid the chocolate burning.
Makes: 12 slices Total time: 20 mins (not including chilling)
400g 70% dark chocolate
4-6 tbsp golden syrup
300g rich tea or digestive biscuits
200g mini marshmallows plus extra for topping (chopped regular marshmallows work
I also added 50g fudge chunks and 50g raisins
· Grease and line a 9 x 12” (20 x 30cm) brownie tin.
· Smash up biscuits into small chunks with a rolling pin and put to one side.
· Melt butter, chocolate and golden syrup on a low heat.
· Leave to cool for five minutes.
· Stir the smashed biscuits and marshmallows (and any other ingredients you might be adding) into the melted chocolate mix.
· Sprinkle some extra marshmallows on top.
· Pop the tray into the fridge and chill for 2-3 hours.
1. Try different additions such as cherries, nuts, cranberries, honeycomb.
2. You can also try different chocolate; white chocolate rocky road is delicious!
I use an empty cereal bag to put the biscuits in before smashing them, as they’re hard wearing and don’t tend to rip.
